Local Planning Boards & Boards of Appeal Workshop

Sponsered by Maine Municipal Association, this workshop is a basic introduction to the rules and procedures governing municipal planning boards and board of appeals. It is designed primarily for new and less experienced planning board and board of appeals members. However, it is also a great refresher for long-time board members. Code Enforcement Officers and municipal officers may find this course helpful as an overview to the role of these boards in their municipalities.

 This course is based on MMA’s Planning Board and Local Land Use Appeals Board manuals. The workshop will cover material from the manuals, including how to conduct a board meeting, how to comply with Maine’s Freedom of Access Act requirements pertaining to open meetings and public records, and the procedures for making a decision, such as how to evaluate evidence on which to base a decision and how to draft findings of fact and conclusions of law. The workshop will also cover the appeals process, including appeals to a board of appeals and to Superior Court.

Climate Symposium

Join us at the Island Institute’s Climate Symposium— Sharing Climate-Forward Innovations! This inaugural event will bring together individuals from diverse industries and backgrounds to exchange ideas on how communities and businesses can tackle climate challenges and build resiliency here on the coast.

Through an interactive Shift and Share (think science fair), select presenters–including business owners, operators, and community leaders–will share insights and co-facilitate discussions on climate resilience. Participants will shift from table to table, listening to presenters and participating in dynamic discussions that aim to inspire new perspectives and implement tangible solutions.

Following the Shift and Share, we will be screening our new Climate of Change short film, “Clean Energy Solutions for the Working Waterfront.

The event will conclude with a Keynote presentation with Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson. Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson is a marine biologist, policy expert, writer, and Brooklyn native. She is co-founder of the non-profit think tank Urban Ocean Lab, co-founder of the climate initiative The All We Can Save Project, and co-creator of the podcast How to Save a Planet. Find her @ayanaeliza.

Attendees may register for the full-day event (Sessions One and Two in the schedule below)and also have the option of attending Session Two only following the Shift and Share.
